    Pros

    No checks bounced. I added these words after "bounced" to meet the five word minimum.

    Cons

    100 percent profit motivated. Patient care and employee concerns are ALMOST non-existent. Good people at centers. Managers outside of the centers are ruthless and I mean ruthless.

    Advice to Management

    Myself and others have tried, to make you change in every way ,up to and including resignation. Nothing will help.

    Pros

    the pay and all the overtime you want

    Cons

    work never ends, management is horrible, a few hours of training and you are left to defend for yourself, micro-manage, rule are make up on a day to day bases, asking for help forget about it.

    Advice to Management

    not to have favoritism because you like them, learn the job that you hire people for, and take a management class to help with those who have never managed anything in their entire life.

    Center manager

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Lincare Holdings

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck that you can out on. There are some good people that work at this company. Good life insurance policy.

    Cons

    Upper management is terrible and they expect way too much from one person. No one stays at this company, unless they are upper management. Center runs with bare minimum staff. Bonus pay is always not given for any excuse they can find. The numbers are manipulated, so you can't get bonus. Do not work for this company unless you are wanting a stepping stone to another company. There is no training for managers. You are thrown in there and expected to figure it out on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Care about what your enters have to say and the issues they are having. Spend some time in the centers and actually listen to the staff. Value your employees. Knowledge is valuable. Training a new person is expensive. Make this a positive place to work. Reward staff when they work hard.

    Pros

    If are desperate enough for a job and need experience

    Cons

    Everything, all they are worried about is you making them bigger paychecks by getting a mandatory number if orders per day and if you dont make them they expect you to do overtime to catch up otherwise you get written up even if you have a planned appointment/day off. You get treated like a child and are expected to deal with the disrespect and unprofessionalism from someone who cant even take a supervisor call correctly let alone run the department. You ask a question and you are asked the question right back! I mean if you knew what to do you wouldn't ask right? People take supervisor calls because the real supervisors do not want to talk. People get yelled at and disrespected on the floor in front of others, and if u go to HR they don't do anything about it. Its like being in prison with a careless warden. You hear conversations you shouldn't be hearing in a professional place. They use your vacation time when u miss a day without your permission, they are careless to an emergency and write you up and tell you to plan when you your child are sick or if your gonna have an emergency. WHO SAYS THAT!!! All that goes on there is harassment, unprofessionalism, rudeness & disrespect and you learn to deal with it until you either find a new job or just don't go in the next day. They pick and choose who they like and who they want to pick on. Ive seen it first hand when i was there and that lady they call supervisor needs a reality check or better yet a termination. she cant handle people period always cursing and being a smart mouth to everyone even to a customer and all employees talk about it, other parts of management do her dirty work for her because she doesn't want to do it, i had two final warnings how did that work?. She can cause you an allergic reaction with the amount of whatever it is that she wears, people don't even have to say a name for you to realize who it is, its that bad. They should have an undercover CEO come in and i guarantee that they would realize everything everyone has said about the company is true and they should get rid of the bad to better their company before the management destroys it and it goes further down hill! They have good people there who work and want to enjoy it but the people who are in control are ruining it for the ones who could help make the company grow. And theres no such thing as a holiday off when you are forced to make it up during that week or you get written up! This place is a joke! Glad im gone!!

    Advice to Management

    Learn about your departments before trying to take control of something you know nothing about! stop being so rude and disrespectful and treating everyone like horse crap, you are not royalty and someone is bound to put you in your place. Its disgusting and unprofessional. If i were CEO of lincare you would be replaced immediately!

    This place is pretty bad. Seek employment here on in desperation, as a put stop to a "real" job.

    Pros

    Being able to be the one person who is courteous to the patients, most of whom are very elderly and deserve your patience and attention.

    Cons

    Poor management. Poor training. Management keeps employees who are very nasty to the patients coworkers simply because they know they'll still make money from Medicare patients who have no option when it comes to choosing DME/HME. Other workers are lazy and very racist against the Hispanic workers. It's very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your patients enough to administer discipline to those who treat them poorly.

    Pros

    An great learning experience. A good way to get experience in oxygen and DME. Good way to build a network

    Cons

    Bad Management, job description changed after I started. Long hours, out till 11:00 at night on non-emergency calls i.e. O2 set ups. Old tech in office, Whole system inefficient for clients and employees. Company focused on numbers rather than clients. High turn over

    Advice to Management

    Improve O2 tank inventories at centers. Embrace technology. Get out of Clearwater and visit your centers. Don't leave it to DM's and managers to find out what is really going on
